Being a ‘cloud-native’ organisation means using the power of cloud-based technologies to move your business forward. When you reach this state, managing and scaling your applications becomes easier. And, thanks to automation, engineers can make high-impact changes frequently and predictably with minimal effort.
Having a cloud adoption strategy is extremely beneficial, no doubt. But where do you start? By getting expert advice and using a professional Kubernetes service.
From inside your organisation it’s not always easy to spot and prioritise problems. Especially when you need to move fast. Throw in the overwhelming choice of technology and you might be feeling stumped.
Thanks to our experience of using cloud technologies on large, high-stakes projects, we know what works and what doesn’t. We can help you decide where to target resources for the biggest gains and choose the right technology to propel your organisation in the right direction.
The process begins with our engineering consultants spending 1-3 days immersed in your business learning everything about the current infrastructure setup, costs and bottlenecks. Ideally this takes place on-site, but it can be done remotely.
During this first stage, we help you pinpoint the obstacles to growth in three main areas:
Looking at how developers work through discovery, design, alpha, beta and production. Can they test ideas quickly? Do they work consistently across multiple (hybrid) cloud providers regardless of on-premises infrastructure?
Examining services to find out if they are inherently flexible or not. How do they cope with changes, iterations, patches and innovation? Can they access and make use of the technologies they need to move at their own pace?
Scrutinising the design of your applications to learn if they can scale up and down freely and use dedicated resources efficiently. Plus, whether they’ve been designed with metrics built in so you can track things easily.
The second stage is about prioritising problems and creating a strategy to deal with them. We agree what areas to focus on, choose projects where improvements should be made, work with developer teams to prove good design principles and show you how to monitor value.
This process has the potential to create real and lasting change, but it starts simply - with a conversation. There’s no reason your organisation should miss out on the value of going native. Talk to us today.
